LikeLike > And how is life through sober eyes? Nicer, Quietly and Sleepier 😉 Just like:: What a wonderful life around is! (Let’s have a little nap 😉 ) The problem is as usual it’s easy to get a cup of coffee but not a nap. People don’t like it. You just can’t sleep where you are. Life is a struggle. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person I see your point. What determined you to quit drinking coffee? LikeLike LikeLiked by 1 person > I see your point. What determined you to quit drinking coffee? Understanding. Here is my logic: I do not use cigarettes, cocaine or such like stimulants so why should I use caffeine? To say true, I heard someday that Pavel Durov (young IT billionaire like Elon M) have a Blacklist: 1. Alcohol 2. Meat 3. Pills and any other pharma drug 4. Nicotine and other drugs 5. Coffee, black and green tea, energy drinks 6. Fast food, sugar, sodas 7.

LikeLiked by 3 people Reply What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned this week? LikeLike Reply I read an article on loneliness. It said instead of depending on something or somebody to overcome loneliness, we should look at it as an opportunity to explore ourselves and our thoughts. That is when the wisdom of life reveals itself to us. I think I won’t look at loneliness again like before but will see it as an opportunity to grow. LikeLiked by 1 person I totally agree with that. The hard part is to see something that “bad” as an opportunity. LikeLike True. When it actually happens its not easy to see an opportunity but then when we read such things we try our best to believe in them and that helps to come out of the bad. LikeLiked by 1 person Listen to music and coffee LikeLiked by 3 people Reply And if we do it in the same time, the effect is even greater 🙂 LikeLike Reply Yes, I also like to sleep to restore energies even if its a small nap LikeLiked by 1 person Working on my PC.

A blog can be incoherent from one post to another, don’t you think? 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I agree. Having the freedom to explore various subjects in life or my life is therapeutic.

Honestly, I like water, but I love Coca Cola, and wine, and beer, and juice, and vodka. None of those make my body as healthy as water, so even though I enjoy them, I make sure I get enough water too. LikeLiked by 1 person Good strategy! LikeLiked by 1 person Reading.

Because at that time, TV stations stopped broadcasting at a certain point, and even if they didn’t, there wasn’t a lot to entertain a 5 or 6 year old. But books? Always available. It was also something I could do in quiet in my room and not get busted for, unlike, say – getting out of bed to play with toys.

It is my calming fix, for someone who internalizes so much already just to stay calm.😅 It also helps that rain doesn’t happen every day where I live. I wouldn’t get much done.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Because caffeine in the coffee can make you addicted. Normally, we enjoyed things we addicted, right? Related to your question, hepful addiction that can make your life, helpful. Errr… i think so. (Smiling) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Sure, but is it a helpful addiction? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply As for coffee, for me… ya. But for others, i don’t know. Different people, different perspective. But whether it’s a helpful addiction or not, as long as it help, as long as you moderate and balance the addiction… so that you are not too addict with something you like, it should be okay. I think so. Because for me, it’s dangerous when you have “too” in anything you do. Ya? (Smiling) LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Burning incense :)!! I do try to self care on the regular 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That’s great! LikeLike Reply If someone loses something, I’m obsessed with looking for it and finding it. Maybe this is my way of having a god complex since I’m not a doctor due to my aversion to seeing blood. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Maybe, or maybe you have a desperate need to solve problems. Do you have the same obsession when it comes to other situations as well? LikeLike Reply Honestly, it’s a few different things. I don’t like losing things because it creates an inordinate amount of negative emotions within and I don’t want others feeling like this. I also kind of feel like a somewhat hero finding lost things for others. Like I spared them a possible day of stress and misery. LikeLiked by 1 person Coffee, and it’s not even about the caffeine (though it does help)! There’s something about the smell and leisurely sipping it, that takes me to a peaceful place. It brings back memories of childhood when things were much simpler. Plus, scientifically speaking, coffee is good for you right? I’m pretty sure this is a fact – maybe not 5 cups a day though… 🙂 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Yes, it is helpful, but in certain quantities. I guess there is something about coffee that it is linked to your childhood. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Try Yerba mate. It’s a South American tea that I’m addicted to.
